Wheels come today!!!! and I am sitting with my doorbell camera streaming and refreshing the tracking page. Amazon has ruined it for us with the some what real time tracking and delivery stops. Wish this delivery service had it.

Still need to figure out the tires. Try to find some take offs to fit on to get my spacers worked out or wait and get brand new rubber for the 2020 season. Nationals was announced to be at Utah Motorsports Campus for NASA 2020 season so we shall see if I get into TT before the seasons starts. Still don’t know what tires I want either. Toyo or Maxxis.

been a while since i came to the page. work has been crazy busy.

flooding kept me stranded at work last week on thursday, the joy of using public transportation and they decide to shut down all bus service at 10am. 3 of the 4 main highway routes out of downtown were completely feet of water
finally got out of downtown around 7pm and got home at 9:10... left for work that morning at 5am lol. my area around my house only got like 4 or 5 inches of rain total from that tropical storm. however, other parts of houston got 30-40" of rain

good luck at your event Chris! sounds like a blast! sucks you didn't get your ducting and such taken care of

oh...
and i'm getting married on saturday (hence why i haven't been on lately... busy getting everything set up/ready). hoping the rain holds out because we were hoping to do it in our backyard. worst case, we will just do it in the house.
super small ceremony, only immediate family.. then just a few friends for the "reception"

Congrats as well. The Kracken did not get washed away this time either did it?

I tried public transport and car pooling and such, in the end it was not worth the few dollars I saved to the time and hassel it could provide. but know people who love it. and if you work in a down town area it likely is more benificial due to the parking.

30-40" of rain! Need to get some big old pipelines built up and pump that up to us. Utah, Idaho, Nevada, California could use that fesh water.

fingers crossed the rain and weather does not impact your wedding! and when you on your honeymoon all will be safe at home.

Yea not getting work done sucks but guess thats what happens when you volunteer to go work an assignement that will give you $$$ of overtime but away from home for 3 weeks.

it is sad though knowing my wheels are sitting in the office in boxes yet to be unpacked and I have another 9 days still before I can open them. but overtime will have just paid for them and or allow for me to buy tires for them so. I must make the sacrafice.

nope. Kraken stayed high and dry this time.
Yeah, i didn't like riding the bus at first. but it saves me a ton of money. 25 mile drive to and from work, plus parking downtown, i prolly save a couple hundred a month easy, if not more.


an area down by the coast got well over 40+ inches of rain since the tropical storm came inland, then circled back over itself, so it just kept drawing more and more moisture from the gulf.. the radar had to start the color coding over because it reached over the highest it could record. lol
LOTS of high water rescues all over the city, except for the west side.
it even spun off a few baby tornadoes

and thanks.
if it rains, no biggie. i heard it is a good omen or whatever. in total, i think there will be 20 people for the ceremony and 30 for the reception (including the 20 from the ceremony).. just might get a little cramped but oh well
